5 STEPS TO ZEN
Consultation and Quote
With more than 20 years of hands-on experience, we know exactly what questions to ask to prepare a clear, detailed quote so you know exactly what to expect. Depending on your project and preferences, we can either create a…
- Fixed Price Quote. For projects of any size, we offer a fixed, guaranteed price you can count on. (For example, see Design/Build.)
- Cost-Plus Estimate. For larger projects, we also offer a cost-plus agreement, and provide you with a preliminary estimate for budgeting purposes. In this type of arrangement, you simply pay the actual costs incurred during the project plus a negotiated markup for managing it.
We don’t believe in surprises. Our quotes are guaranteed in writing. You won’t pay a penny more than what is agreed upon beforehand, in writing.
Planning and Scheduling
Once we reach an agreement, we’ll begin detailed planning by first reviewing the drawings and working with architects, designers, and subcontractors in refining the design, materials, and costs. If your project isn’t large enough to justify hiring an interior designer, we can help you with making appropriate selections. Many people feel a bit intimidated by the hundreds of little choices that have to be made during the renovation process. Not to worry.
We’re here to help with even the “smallest” of decisions by making appropriate and helpful suggestions. If you’re pressed for time, we can even present a “packaged” option for you so you don’t have to get involved in all the little details if you prefer not to. We’ll even handle the shopping.
We’ll also coordinate with your local Building Department and supply all the necessary documents. Our 20 years of experience has taught us how to successfully navigate the red tape in obtaining building permits, passing inspections, and other hassles. Finally, we’ll develop a schedule and begin ordering materials to ensure they are in place and ready to go before the work begins. All this ensures we stay on time and on budget.
Before we begin a renovation, our first priority is to protect your existing surfaces, furniture, and belongings from the construction process. We apply protective covering, move furniture, and box up your belongings as necessary to keep them safe.
We even take digital photos to make sure everything is back in its proper place once the renovation is complete. It’s yet another way we take the hassle out of renovation, freeing up your valuable time for things that are more important to you.
We maintain a fanatical devotion to quality workmanship, paying attention to the smallest details to ensure your new living space is as beautiful as it is practical.
Our master craftsman can bring virtually any design to life. So go ahead… dream big. Dream bold. We’ll make it happen.
During the renovation process, you can expect our workers to be courteous and respectful. If requested, we can set up regular site meetings with you to review our progress, make selections, and discuss other project details. Or if you choose, we’ll simply make sure everything is taken care of for you while you focus on more important things.
Finally, we’ll wrap up the project by going through a final “punch list” of to-do items to ensure every last detail is completely taken care of.
We’ll even do a professional cleaning—and put everything back in its proper place—so you have one less thing to worry about.
Our goal is to do such a thorough job removing all the worry and hassle that it’s almost as if the construction happened by “magic”!
No one else offers anywhere close to this level of exclusive service and support. We warranty our work for one year.
So go ahead. Simplify your life.
